The tale of three women's struggle for justice and equality

The tale of three women's struggle for justice and equalityby Indrani Kopal | 12:05PM May 24, 2012 Guppy Union was started by women workers who worked in a plastics factory in Balakong, Cheras. Their struggle and desire to start a union started 14 years ago, when they were frustrated with their bosses for increasing their wages by a mere 10 sen. The workers then decided to get organised to protect their interests. The first meeting to establish a pro-tem committee was held on Nov 16, 1997. After much hassle, the government approved the Guppy Industries Workers Union on April 2, 1998, led by a seven-member committee with Koyil Vani Saminathan as chairperson. However, Guppy refused to recognise the union unless three-quarters of the workers joined the union, including those in the branch in Prai, Penang. The union committee and members were left frustrated as they had not been aware of the Prai operations. Still, the three main office-bearers - Koyil Vani Saminathan, secretary Roshamiza Muhamamd and treasurer Kanniamah Annasamy - headed for Prai to recruit members. In spite of numerous threats, negative propaganda and dirty tricks by the factory owners to deter union activities, they were able to slowly add to the membership. On May 30, 1998, however, the management suspended all the committee members and then sacked Koyil Vani, Roshamiza, who had worked for the company since April 1993, and Kanniamah, an employee since July 1991. However, the 200 union members re-elected Koyil Vani as their chairperson up to 2008. The union continued to function under the able leadership of vice-chairperson Rahiman Mansor and assistant treasurer S Visaletchumy. But on Aug 25, 2001, they were suspended and eventually sacked. Guppy Plastic Industries rejected all attempts by Industrial Relations officers to reinstate the workers or to agree to resolve any of the disputes referred by the union. In September 1998, the matter was referred to the Industrial Court. In May 2006, the union lost the case, but took it to the High Court two months later. In 2009, victory was theirs. However, the unhappy company appealed in October 2011, leading to a verdict in its favour on Feb 21, 2012. Under Koyil Vani, the union had also championed a gender discrimination case for 11 years against the management. -- In June 2001, 30 women workers above the age of 50 were forced to retire after a new handbook of employment regulations was introduced by the company, in which the retirement age was stipulated. Eight of them filed a complaint with the Industrial Court. In 2008, it decided in their favour, finding that the difference in retirement age constitutes gender discrimination. Guppy Plastic Industries sought a review and in 2010, the High Court overturned the decision. The eight then filed an appeal, but this was dismissed by the Court of Appeal on March 21, 2012 in a unanimous decision by a three-member bench. Justice KN Segara said the company was merely following its own employment regulations and that it is the industry norm to have different retirement ages. For 14 years, these women had battled double oppression, for being women and for being a union member, in a country that is signatory to the UN Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women. This is their story. Cameraworks by Navin Kumar Perianen Edited by Indrani Kopal

Dalit Women (We are not untouchable - End caste discrimination now)
 
06:57
Go to www.endcaste.com today - it takes one click to register your support to end caste discrimination! Caste discrimination is a global human rights issue affecting an estimated 260 million people across the world, the majority of which live in South Asia where they call themselves Dalits. The human rights violations against Dalits fundamentally breach the principles of equality and non-discrimination and despite legislation in many countries prohibiting caste discrimination Dalits have little or no access to justice and crimes against them are often committed with impunity. This short film brings to light a handful of violations that those who continue to be treated as 'untouchables', are subjected to, focusing particularly on Dalit Women who must deal with multiple discrimination due to gender and caste. They also show how Dalit activists stand up for their rights and demand change. The film is launched in connection with the introductory film on caste discrimination - We are not untouchable - End caste discrimination now. The two film are a collage of video material from Dalit community video volunteers, documentary filmmakers, and NGOs. They cover India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Yemen. Extract of some of the cases included in the films: Violence and Murder: A six year-old Dalit girl is thrown into a fire for walking on a road reserved for 'upper castes' and a Dalit woman is shot dead when protesting illegal takeover of Dalit land. Segregation: Dalits are treated as 'untouchables' and Dalit children in schools are made to clean the toilets, sit at the back of the classroom and eat separately from the other children. Rape and sexual abuse: Dalit women describe how they are abused and raped by 'upper castes', often in retaliation for Dalit communities asserting their rights. Forced prostitution: A 14 year-old Dalit girl in Nepal works as a prostitute because it is prescribed to her caste and in India Dalit girls are made to work as temple prostitutes. Unacceptable labour conditions: Dalits working as debt-slaves in bonded labour to 'upper caste' landlords and Dalits working with no protective gear cleaning out city sewers.

Yemen's 'untouchables'
 
02:30
Distinguished by their dark skin, Yemen's 'untouchables', who prefer to be called the marginalised ones, are a caste languishing at society's lowest social order. Named the Akhdam, an Arabic word for servant, they are confined to living in slums and working menial jobs, with no regard given to their basic human rights. Activists and community leaders are fighting to eliminate stereotypes and destroy the stigma that surrounds them. But there is a growing sense among many Akhdam that there is nothing they can do to put an end to the pervasive culture of discrimination and prejudice.

Latest Report on China's Marginalized Women
 
03:24
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Chinese Human Rights Defenders recently released a report on the violence against Chinese disadvantaged female groups. The report was finished after one year's survey by a non-governmental organization. The violence against women is reported as being rampant in China. Nearly 42% of the women surveyed found themselves in violent situations during long periods, this caused them serious physical and psychological harm. On March 1, a survey report about China's marginalized women was released by an NGO investigation panel. The interview respondents included girl victims of violence, women who had suffered forced abortion, female petitioners and women selling sex. The report aims at reflecting the commitment of The Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) regime, a signatory to the Convention for the Elimination of All Forms of Violence Against Women. The panel conducted interviews through the network, gave questionnaires and conducted field surveys. The 82 female interviewees came from Wuhan, Yunnan, Tianjin, Hangzhou, Beijing, Henan, Hebei and Guangxi. Among the women surveyed, 33% had been sexually violated, 75% were victims of violent attacks, 7% had experienced other forms of violence. These marginalized women were first attacked at the average age of 25, 30% of them were under the age of 18. Beijing-based Globe-Law Law Firm lawyer, Jiang Tianyong, says that outward legislation and the judiciary in China are a pretence. They cannot truly protect the rights of the Chinese people, and are only safeguarding the CCP's rule, according to Jiang. Jiang Tianyong says: "There aren't so many true NGOs in China. The All-China Women's Federation and similar organizations are all actually controlled by the regime. These nation-wide women's federations are not set up to help these disadvantaged groups for the defense of their rights. Instead, they are just one of the CCP's organizations at all levels, aimed at maintaining the Party system, and the maintenance of social stability." Shanghai-based lawyer Li Tiantian points out that elective enforcement is very common in today's China. The officials in power are often outside the law. The ties between China's ruler and the ruled are just like those between kidnappers and kidnapped. The regime regards violence as the rule, so citizens have never really been protected, says Li. Li Tiantian says: "Many Chinese laws can't be implemented, since they can be deformed in the enforcement process. Just like rubber bands, they're elastic. The legislation excludes Chinese citizen's participation, having been set up by the rulers. So in the process of legislation and enforcement, no consideration whatsoever was given to the protection of human rights. Plus, in the enactment of the official selective enforcement, China's law became neither fish nor fowl. Discretion is always used in an arbitrary way. That's why China's legislation can't protect human rights." Lawyer Jiang Tianyong adds that a variety of laws in China have not been put into practice in reality. The country has seen serious retrogression in the rule of law during recent years. An individual citizen could face the serious problem of lack of basic necessities if without following the CCP's order. Due to the incompetence of the CCP's administration. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

www.dalitsolidarity.org Dalit Solidarity is a charitable organization which has focussed on the empowerment of the dalits since 2000. This documentary is about the dalits who are destined to wash the dirty clothes of others in the caste system. They are known as Dhobies and addressed differently in different parts of the country. This documentary reminds of our moral obligation to help these victims of the caste oppression to live with dignity. The dhobies are treated much worse than the ordinary dalits. They are dalits among dalits in India. How can we empower them? dalitsolidarity@gmail.com

Extreme citizen science in the Congo Basin | Jerome Lewis | TEDxUCL
 
19:23
Jerome Lewis began working with Pygmy hunter-gatherers and former hunter-gatherers in Rwanda in 1993. This led to work on the impact of the genocide on Rwanda's Twa Pygmies. Since 1994 he has worked with Mbendjele Pygmies in Congo-Brazzaville researching child socialisation, play and religion; egalitarian politics and gender relations; and language, music and dance. Studying the impact of global forces on many Pygmy groups across the Congo Basin has led to research into discrimination, economic and legal marginalisation, human rights abuses, and to applied research supporting conservation efforts by forest people and supporting them to better represent themselves to outsiders. Talk: Extreme Citizen Science in the Congo Basin The talk will describe the unusual collaboration between Pygmy hunter-gatherers and UCL's Departments of Anthropology, Engineering and Computer Science. Though many Pygmy hunter-gatherers in the Congo Basin are unable to read the numbers on banknotes or write their own names they have begun to use handheld computers and hacked smart phones with software that they have developed collaboratively with UCL staff and students in the Extreme Citizen Science Research Group. Participating hunter-gatherers can now geo-tag key resources that they do not want to be damaged by industrialists, monitor logging activities that take place in their forest areas, and identify commercial poaching activities that damage wildlife and their ability to lead a secure hunter-gatherer life. By bringing together these different perspectives, exciting new technologies are emerging that can efficiently communicate across linguistic and cultural barriers to give a voice to normally marginalised people.

Centre for Servies and Information on Disability, Bangladesh
 
03:32
Author: Tim Tyson Short and Caroline Noble The Centre for Services and Information on Disability is the winner of the Stars Foundation impact education award for its work to end the stigma of disability in Bangladesh. The Dhaka-based centre works with some of the most marginalised children and young people in Bangladesh, offering them access to education and employment, and promoting their inclusion in society. CSID received a STARS Foundation Impact Award for its pioneering work with disabled children amongst some of the poorest communities in Bangladesh. The challenge In Bangladesh, where over 20 per cent of the population is disabled, only 4 per cent of disabled children are estimated to be accessing basic education, recreation and leisure activities, and at least 80 per cent live in low-income families. This marginalised group is excluded from mainstream development plans, both within government and the NGO sector. As a result, many of these children face a life stigmatised and shamed of their disability, or forced to work on the streets as a source of income for their families. The response Centre for Services and Information on Disability (CSID) fights for the inclusion of disabled people in society and promotes their equal rights. CSID targets the most vulnerable children within this marginalised group, such as those living on the streets in slums and in rural areas, as well as those with severe degrees of disability and/or with no access to education and recreation activities. To overcome social exclusion and discrimination, CSID works closely with the school authorities, local government, community and businesses to provide access to health and rehabilitation services, education, recreation, vocational training and decent employment. CSID also aims to influence national policy and legislation so that it is more reflective and representative of the rights of disabled people and children. The result CSID have enhanced the mobility and functional ability of over 900 disabled children who now participate in CSID's programmes. Following attendance at CSID operated pre-school centres, where children with and without disabilities learn together, 650 disabled children have been enrolled in mainstream schools, with a 95 per cent retention rate. In addition, seven self-advocacy groups of disabled children have been created, and the government is steadily changing its approach to disability, evidenced by the introduction of an education stipend for children with disabilities and the incorporation of disability issues in National Education Policy. A marked increase in wider community acceptance and interaction has also been noted, as well as higher levels of accountability and care within families. www.starsfoundation.org.uk www.csid-bd.org https://www.facebook.com/pages/STARS-Foundation/274913646781

Disability and HIV/AIDS
 
11:48
Persons with disabilities in the developing world are often faced by extreme social, political, financial and cultural marginalisation which makes them more at risk of being HIV infected. Despite this only few policy makers and HIV/AIDS organisations recognise persons with disabilities as a targetgroup. Personer med handicap i udviklingslande bliver ofte udsat for sociale, politiske, finansielle og kulturelle marginaliseringer hvilket øger deres risiko for at blive smittet med HIV. Denne film fortæller historien om personer med handicap i Uganda og hvorledes de håndterer HIV/AIDS. Engelsk tale med danske undertekster.

ABOUT FORUM THEATRE: Forum Theatre is a rehearsal for reality. It is a form of the so called Theater of the Opressed, that is a method developed by Augusto Boal, based on Paulo Freire's ideas. First it was developed and practiced in South America, but later brought to Europe and adapted to the situation here. Currently Forum Theatre as a method is being practiced in more than 70 countries by all different kinds of members of society. Forum Theatre is a form of interactive theater where the audience is strongly invited to offer and play out solutions to the situation played out on the stage. There is a structure behind how the play is set up and shown to the audience. Generally it shows a situation of social or political oppression that is understandible and hurtful to the audience. Then, invited by the Joker (facilitator of the interactions), audience members offer their solutions, which are both feasible and realistic. Then the play is repeated and stopped, repeated and stopped until a satisfactory solution is reached. Forum theater is not meant to find ideal solutions for problems, but to engage the audience in inventing new ways for coping with oppression of any kind. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.

Video: Malayalam Taken: July 2012 Place: Kozhikode, Kerala In the above video he talks about the way the caste question is suppressed in Kerala society. And the way the left movement suppresses any question related to caste....... and also he talks about marxist party (CPIM)'s killing the anti people or those who speak about left in kerala.....More importantly he talks about the relevance of Dr. Ambedkar in contemporary Indian society. He also reflects on colonies, scavenging population, land question...... Ayinoor Vasu was the leader of one of the biggest labour movements in Kerala - the agitations against the Mavoor Gwalior Rayons Factory, owned by the Aditya Birla group. The Mavoor labour movement is noted for the unique combination of labour struggles and environmentalism. The movement, therefore, is ground breaking in the history of labour movements in Kerala, if not India. Vasu, popularly known as GROW Vasu (after Gwalior Rayons Workers' Organisation), shares his memories about the struggles against the corrupt trade union leaders of the factory - the struggles against what he terms as the revisionist tendencies within the established trade unions of Kerala. Vasu calls E. K. Nayanar, the then Chief Minister of Kerala and a member of the CPI (M), as the leader of the revisionists in Kerala. Through his memories he reminds us that revisionism is, in the last analysis, fascism.
